The Reconstruction of Oregon Avenue in Washington, D.C. Earns Envision Silver Award for Sustainability
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) Reconstruction of Oregon Avenue project is a recent recipient of the Envision Silver Award. The Envision framework rates sustainable infrastructure projects across the full range of environmental, social, and economic impacts. The Oregon Avenue project is the first in the District of Columbia to earn a prestigious Envision sustainable infrastructure award.
The design resolves significant transportation deficiencies along a 1.7-mile corridor, including deteriorating pavements, roadway geometry, inconsistent roadway width, stormwater drainage, transportation structures, and roadway lighting, as well as sight distances and pedestrian facilities.
Volkert, Inc. – a leading provider of transportation and infrastructure consulting services – worked in close collaboration with DDOT to deliver this award-winning, sustainable project design.
